Spring 2013 Trend Report: The Moto Jacket

It seems as if biker jackets are no longer restricted to the members of Hell's Angels or the T-Birds. Though this trend is nothing new, the moto jacket has recently received an intense makeover. This season, good girl meets bad girl with tough coats in vibrant hues. As luxe as a moto jacket may sound, this sought-after piece is available at a plethora of different price points. Translation? There's a biker chic pick for everyone.

Like most trends this spring season, anything goes when rocking a moto jacket.  Whether you mix this fad with bright colors, crazy prints or a subdued neutral ensemble, the key to this phenomenon is expressing your personal style. If your jacket isn't too bright, I suggest sporting a monochromatic look-- adding different textures to the mix creates an ensemble that's waiting to be shot by Bill Cunningham. According to Rag & Bone, Etro and J. Mendel, this trend isn't just a sartorial summer romance. If you want to rock this trend once that coveted tan from the Hamptons, invest in a neutral moto jacket.
